Are the heritage feats going to operate more like those found in Players Guide II (spend a spell slot), or something like Fiendish Codex I (always on)?

Song of Miscast Magic: 33% chance the spell being cast stutters and fails, 33% chance the spell misfires on the wrong target (offensive on self, defensive on enemy), 33% chance the spell is a completely different spell than the one originally being cast. Clouds turns into create food :)

This suggestion is completely serious.

That's right. Port the newer zone features to the old things in...
